Back when Americans were still debating whether there was just cause for a preëmptive strike against Iraq, few arguments were scrutinized more closely than the Bush Administration’s contention that there were covert links between Al
Qaeda and Iraq. At the C.I.A., analysts pored over aerial satellite photographs. At the Treasury Department, experts sifted through financial records. At the National Security Agency, Arab-speaking linguists eavesdropped on phone
conversations. But, even after Secretary of State Colin Powell put his credibility on the line, in a damning, dot-connecting speech before the United Nations last February, questions persisted about the solidity of the alleged
links between Saddam and Osama.



Now there is a new and demonstrable connection, but it is not the kind that the Bush Administration had in mind. In fact, it is more likely to fuel the speculations of conspiracy theorists than it is to put their fears to rest. It turns out that a money
trail runs—albeit rather circuitously—from the lucrative business of rebuilding Iraq to the fortune behind Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden’s estranged family, a sprawling, extraordinarily wealthy Saudi Arabian dynasty, is a substantial
investor in a private equity firm founded by the Bechtel Group of San Francisco. Bechtel is also the global construction and engineering company to which the U.S. government recently awarded the first major multimillion-dollar
contract to reconstruct war-ravaged Iraq. In a closed competitive bidding process, the United States Agency for International Development chose Bechtel to rebuild the major elements of Iraq’s infrastructure, including its roads,
railroads, airports, hospitals, and schools, and its water and electrical systems. In the first phase of the contract, the U.S. government will pay Bechtel nearly thirty-five million dollars, but experts say that the cost is likely
to reach six hundred and eighty million during the next year and a half.
When the contract was awarded, two weeks ago, the Administration did not mention that the bin Laden family has an ongoing relationship with Bechtel. The bin Ladens have a ten-million-dollar stake in the Fremont Group, a San Francisco-based
company formerly called Bechtel Investments, which was until 1986 a subsidiary of Bechtel. The Fremont Group’s Web site, which makes no mention of the bin Ladens, notes that “though now independent, Fremont enjoys a close relationship
with Bechtel.” A spokeswoman for the company confirmed that Fremont’s “majority ownership is the Bechtel family.” And a list of the corporate board of directors shows substantial overlap. Five of Fremont’s eight directors are also
directors of Bechtel. One Fremont director, Riley Bechtel, is the chairman and chief executive officer of the Bechtel Group, and is a member of the Bush Administration: he was appointed this year to serve on the President’s Export
Council. In addition, George Shultz, the Secretary of State in the Reagan Administration, serves as a director both of Fremont and of the Bechtel Group, where he once was president and still is listed as senior counsellor.



Rick Kopf, the general counsel of the Fremont Group, which manages some eleven billion dollars in assets, confirms that the bin Laden family invested about ten million dollars in one of Fremont’s private funds before September 11,
2001. He noted that the bin Laden family has not enlarged its stake since then, but he declined to provide additional details about its association with the firm. He also chose not to discuss the origin or the nature of the relationship
between the bin Laden and Bechtel families, both of which made fortunes in huge construction projects in the Arab world. The Fremont Group evidently does not go in for connecting the dots. As Kopf said, “Ownership is private and
is not disclosed.”

AT&T CEO David W. Dorman and the Unpaid Programmer

David W. Dorman 
1954–

Chairman and chief executive officer, AT&T Corporation
Nationality: American.
Born: 1954, in Georgia.
Education: Georgia Institute of Technology, BS, 1975.
Family: Married Susan (maiden name unknown); children: three.
Career: Sprint, 1981–1990, manager; 1990–1994, president of Sprint Business; Pacific Bell, 1994–1997, president, CEO, and chairman; SBC Communications, 1997, executive vice president; PointCast, 1997–1999, president, CEO, and chairman; Concert Communications, 1999–2000, CEO; AT&T Corporation, 2000–2002, president; 2002–, chairman and CEO.
Address: AT&T Corporation, 1 AT&T Way, Bedminster, New Jersey 07921-0752; http://www.att.com.
■ David W. Dorman had a relaxed style and spoke with a Georgian drawl; his keen wit and considerable charm put fellow workers at ease and enabled him to speak easily with the people he supervised. He gained a reputation for being able to build businesses when he increased Sprint Business's revenue from $4 million in 1990 to $4.5 billion in 1993. The greatest challenge of his career came in 2000, when he took on the task of rebuilding AT&T, a company whose total stock value had fallen from a high of $110 billion to a low of less than $11 billion in the late 1990s.

SPRINT

Dorman graduated with a bachelor's degree in industrial management from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1975, just three years after entering college. His big break came in 1981, when he became the fifty-fifth employee hired by the company that would later become Sprint. He worked various management positions for the company until he was appointed as president of Sprint Business, where careful marketing led to rapid growth; the division eventually comprised 10,000 employees.

PACIFIC BELL AND SBC

In 1994 Dorman was hired away by Pacific Bell, a division of Pacific Telesis Group, one of the Baby Bells spun off from AT&T in the early 1980s. At the age of 39 Dorman was the youngest leader ever at any of the Baby Bells, having become Pacific Bell's president, chief executive officer, and chairman of the board. The company was quite large, with 50,000 employees, 10 million household customers, one million business customers, and $11 billion in annual revenue.
In 1997 SBC Communications bought Pacific Telesis Group, and Dorman lost his exalted position, becoming SBC's executive vice president. Many observers thought that his move to PointCast in late 1997 was motivated by his frustration with having to answer to corporate leaders who did not share his management views, as well as by his desire to be the leader of a company. But Dorman stated that his wife and three children had not wished to move to SBC's corporate headquarters, demanding instead to stay put in California; his family's wishes motivated him to accept the position of president, CEO, and chairman of PointCast, an Internet information provider. Dorman received a $1.5 million signing bonus from PointCast and a $250,000 salary in 1998. He found PointCast to be confused, pushing too many different kinds of data; he gave the company focus by instituting an emphasis on news reporting. In spite of Dorman's efforts, however, PointCast ran short of capital in 1999, and in April of that year Dorman accepted the position of CEO at Concert Communications.

AT&T

Concert Communications was a joint venture by AT&T and British Telecommunications. The companies' hope was to build Concert into a worldwide telecom service, but the project was doomed by unrealistic expectations from the management at both AT&T and British Telecommunications; in 2000 Concert failed. In December 2000 Dorman was named president of AT&T, becoming responsible for customer services, AT&T labs, network services, and global business ventures. AT&T had been without a president for over a year.
In 1998 AT&T's market capitalization was $110 billion, and the company was growing in new directions, having become the country's sixth-largest provider of Internet services. In 2000 AT&T carried more data traffic than voice traffic for the first time. On October 25, 2000, AT&T began reorganizing itself into four segments: AT&T Wireless, AT&T Broadband, AT&T Business, and AT&T Consumer. When Dorman became president, the company was chaotic, with communication between departments sorely deficient; in one instance, sales representatives were selling goods that the divisions responsible for production did not have.
Dorman spent much of 2001 fostering cooperation among those departments. He devoted his time to clarifying the motivation behind the changes AT&T was undergoing, such as the May 25, 2001, purchase of NorthPoint Communications, a network service provider, as well as the spinning off of AT&T Wireless to become an independent company. The revenue from Dorman's responsibilities totaled $40 billion, out of $66 billion altogether for AT&T; in all Dorman supervised over 82,000 employees.
In February 2002 Dorman was appointed to AT&T's board of directors, a step toward his becoming the company's CEO. During 2002 Dorman strove to modernize AT&T by replacing 48 "legacy" telecommunications switching systems with up-to-date systems that used Internet protocol. He hoped to use the Internet for routing voice telephone calls as well as data communications, thus eliminating the need to pay local telephone companies access fees in order to use their lines. Additionally Dorman directed the marketing of bundled services to customers, which proved especially attractive to businesses that wanted a wide variety of services and could find them all available at AT&T. The company sold these bundles of services to corporations such as Hyatt Hotels, MasterCard, and Merrill Lynch. AT&T introduced ultra-accurate voice-recognition software that would replace operators at some companies. Dorman spent $200 million to develop new customer services, and he had all 4,300 customer-services personnel retrained to be more helpful. On November 18, 2002, AT&T Broadband merged with Comcast Corporation, and the AT&T CEO and chairman C. Michael Armstrong left AT&T to run the new Comcast; that day Dorman became CEO and chairman at AT&T. For the year Dorman was paid $6.5 million.
In 2003 AT&T became the largest provider of Internet services and doubled its total number of local-service customers to 28 million. Another 52 "legacy" systems were replaced. The company introduced software called "underware" to handle basic computer tasks, and Dorman puckishly suggested that customers should not leave home without their underware. He negotiated a merger with BellSouth that would have put him in a position to become CEO when BellSouth's leader F. Duane Ackerman retired; however, the merger talks fell apart on October 28, 2003, when Ackerman decided the $25 apiece price for AT&T shares was too steep. That year Dorman cut 8,500 jobs, or 12 percent of AT&T's workforce.
In 2004 some observers still expected AT&T to fail, but its situation was looking up. Dorman had carefully paid down AT&T's debts, giving the company a good debt-to-income ratio. Furthermore, the company's stock was once again increasing in value, giving AT&T $15 billion in stock capitalization.

■ Edward E. Whitacre Jr., the six-foot-four-inch native Texan known by friends and colleagues as "Big Ed," was chairman of the board and chief executive officer at the global telecommunications giant SBC Communications as of 2004. During his reign at SBC, which began in January 1990, Whitacre led the company—with his trademark focus on diversification,

financial control, strategic acquisitions, and shareowner value—from being the smallest of the regional Baby Bell companies into one of the leading full-service telecommunications companies in the world.
SBC was one of 30 prestigious companies factored into the Dow Jones Industrial Average in 1999 and was consistently ranked high on the Fortune 500 list, amassing operating revenue of $40.8 billion and a net income of $8.5 billion with the help of over 175,000 employees. Through the company's powerful affiliates—including Southwestern Bell, Ameritech, Nevada Bell, Pacific Bell, Southern New England Telecommunications, and Sterling Commerce—Whitacre and SBC delivered a comprehensive set of telecommunications services, including local and long-distance telephone, wireless communications, high-speed DSL (digital subscriber line) Internet, web hosting, network integration, and business-to-business e-commerce solutions. As of 2003 nearly half of the Fortune 500 companies were headquartered in states served by SBC companies.
While SBC serviced about 57 million access lines nationwide in 2004, covering about one-third of the U.S. population, the company concentrated primarily in the 13 states with its largest markets: California (formerly served by Pacific Bell), Texas (Southwestern Bell), Illinois (Ameritech), Arkansas, Connecticut, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin. Other wire services provided by SBC included long-distance telephone, with over 14.4 million access lines, and Internet access, with about 3.5 million subscribers to DSL broadbandservices. SBC companies have telecommunications investments in 26 other countries worldwide.
In 2000 the company combined its U.S. wireless operations with those of BellSouth to form Cingular Wireless, the second-largest U.S. wireless company—behind Verizon Wireless—serving more than 24 million customers. As of 2004 SBC companies owned 60 percent of Cingular, the leading U.S. provider of high-speed DSL Internet-access services and one of the country's leading internet service providers.

GROWING UP AVERAGE

Whitacre was the son of a railroad engineer and spent much of his early years shooting rabbits in the fields and trapping frogs along the creeks near the tiny railroad town of Ennis, Texas, about 40 miles south of Dallas. He displayed a competitive but cooperative nature even in grade school, when after receiving a new football uniform he gave his old one to a friend so that they could practice against one another. In high school Whitacre was a first baseman and a defensive end in baseball and football, respectively; he was remembered as a player who could easily overpower his opponents. Most classmates expected that the popular Whitacre would find a job at the local railroad, perhaps going as far as middle management. As quoted by Roger Crockett in BusinessWeek , one childhood friend later remarked, "I would never in a million years have thought that he would go on to do such big things'" (April 12, 1999). But someone else did want something better for him: his father told him to go to college; he would eventually be the first person in his family to do so.

WOULDN'T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER

Whitacre gained direction during the summer after his junior year in college, when he looked for work at the Dallas telephone company Southwestern Bell. The manager told him that there was nothing to be done; but Whitacre was stubborn, offering to do even the most menial of tasks and refusing to depart. At length the manager reconsidered and hired him to hammer in fence posts and measure telephone wire.

SOUTHWESTERN BELL

Whitacre began his career with Southwestern Bell Telephone Company under more legitimate terms in September 1963 as a facility engineer in Lubbock, Texas. In 1964 he earned his bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from Texas Tech University. He progressed through numerous assignments within Southwestern Bell's operational departments in Arkansas, Kansas, and Texas. In July 1977 Whitacre was named assistant vice president of engineering and network services in Dallas, Texas.
Beginning in September 1982 Whitacre was made president of Southwestern Bell's Kansas division, which he led through the breakup and sale of the Bell conglomerate. In March 1985 he moved to corporate headquarters, where he served as group president in charge of all of the company's nontelephone operations. In April 1986 he was named vice president of public affairs and revenues and had responsibilities for Southwestern Bell's federal and state regulatory and legislative initiatives. In October of the same year Whitacre joined Southwestern Bell's board of directors and was named vice chairman and chief financial officer.
In October 1988, after convincing the board members of his cooperability, straightforwardness, and toughness, Whitacre was made president and chief operating officer of Southwestern Bell. In that position he was responsible for the operation of the company's six main subsidiaries. On January 1, 1990, Whitacre became chairman of the board and chief executive officer. He had also been a director of Southwestern Bell since October 1986, the chairman of the Executive Committee, and a member of the Corporate Development Committee and the Finance/Pension Committee.

LEADING SBC TOWARD GROWTH

Whitacre initially began his company's drive for growth in September 1994, when a name change occurred—the new name, SBC Communications, would better identify the company as a diversified, global communications company. The passing of the Telecommunications Act in February 1996 provided Whitacre with the ability to rapidly increase SBC's growth as a national communications provider. (The Telecommunications Act of 1996 allowed any communications company to compete in any market in the United States, thus removing the restrictions that had previously limited where such companies were allowed to operate.) Whitacre guided SBC through an era of unbelievable expansion, leading a series of mergers, acquisitions, and formations that dramatically changed the telecommunications landscape. Among these acquisitions were those of Pacific Telesis Group in 1997 for $17 billion (the first merger of former Bell companies); Southern New England Telecommunications in 1998 for $4.4 billion; Comcast Cellular in 1999; Ameritech in 1999 for $62 billion (at the time, the largest telephone-industry deal); and Bell-South in 2000.
The deal struck by Whitacre to obtain the San Francis-co–based Pacific Telesis formed an 118,000-employee telecommunications company serving the country's two most populous states, California and Texas, and seven of the country's top 10 markets. The Comcast deal introduced additional service areas in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey and 800,000 customers. The Ameritech deal allowed Whitacre to enter the $80 billion long-distance business and 30 U.S. markets outside its existing regions—making the company the leading U.S. provider of local telecommunications service and giving it access to the top 50 markets in the United States. In 1999 the company engaged in a $6 billion initiative called Project Pronto that allowed fiber-optic networks to become available to about 80 percent of its customers, many of them rural customers without previous access to such advanced products and services.
Whitacre expanded SBC into the worldwide wireless communications business with investments in Teléfonos de México (Telmex), Bell Canada, and Telkom South Africa. The Telmex partnership, which provided local, long-distance, and wireless service to Mexican customers, solidified SBC's position as a strong international player and acted as a catalyst for additional global ventures.
Such expansion allowed Whitacre, once dubbed Baby Bell's Acquisition King, to offer long-distance service in all of the 13 states in SBC's primary region. As a result the company was capable of capitalizing on new opportunities in voice and data revenue, maximizing market competitiveness, markedly strengthening the company's already impressive portfolio of products, upgrading its national data and Internet Protocol strategy and networks, and improving efficiency throughout its network.

DIFFERENTIATION AND ESTABLISHING A NATIONAL BRAND

When uncertain times prevailed within the telecommunications industry during the recession years of 2000–2002, Whitacre set SBC apart from other telecommunications companies by promoting its financial strength and stability. Such advertising campaigns as "Who We Are" aggressively emphasized SBC's commitment to the customers and communities it served. Whitacre proudly touted SBC's system of world-class networks across the United States and the common desirable qualities that each affiliate brought to the SBC family of companies.
In 1999 Whitacre introduced the SBC brand to customers across the country, eliminating regional brands—such as Southwestern Bell, Pacific Bell, Nevada Bell, and Ameritech—to make way for the single, unifying national brand of SBC. Whitacre wanted to make it as easy as possible for SBC's customers to find and do business with SBC companies nationwide. With the introduction of the nationally recognizable name, Whitacre had fully transformed SBC into a major communications-services company.

FOCUS ON SUCCESS

Whitacre had a soft-spoken Texas drawl that often hid his fiercely competitive nature. After 1998 earnings climbed 20 percent to $3.9 billion on sales of $27 billion and the first two of his major acquisitions were finalized in the late 1990s, Whitacre said in BusinessWeek , "We can sit here and get picked on or get bigger and have more clout" (January 11, 1999).
SBC was named the World's Most Admired Telecommunications Company by Fortune magazine for the sixth consecutive year in 2003, having held the top spot since the award was first introduced. Fortune also named SBC as America's Most Admired Telecommunications Company for the seventh time in eight years. Whitacre continued to create long-term value for company shareowners by providing reliable and innovative telecommunication services—a task that was successfully accomplished by Whitacre and his predecessors for over one hundred years.
Whitacre was once named among the Top 25 Executives of the Year by BusinessWeek and was listed as one of the Best CEOs in America by Worth magazine. Within his company, Whitmore was a member of SBC Pioneers, a volunteer group dedicated to making a significant difference in communities served by SBC companies. He also earned a number of awards for his contributions to business, educational, and civic programs, including the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce's Freeman Award, the Spirit of Achievement Award from the National Jewish Medical and Research Center, and the International Citizen of the Year Award from the San Antonio World Affairs Council. He was inducted into the Texas Business Hall of Fame and the American Academy of Achievement.
Whitacre concentrated on promoting diversity within SBC companies and suppliers. Fortune and Working Woman magazines, along with the Women's Business Enterprise National Council, the National Minority Business Council, and the National Minority Supplier Development Council, recognized these efforts. Whitacre and SBC Communications were presented with the Ron Brown Award, the sole presidential corporate-leadership award, to commend the company's supplier diversity program.

OTHER DUTIES

To accompany his responsibilities within SBC, Whitacre served on the board of directors of Anheuser-Busch Companies, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corporation, Emerson Electric Company, and The May Department Stores Company. He was also on the board of the Institute for International Economics and a member of The Business Council.
